A neighborhood kid gave me a derelict viper for redoing his apc rice rocket for him.
The scooter was a fun build and all the kids enjoyed it for a summer.
Once bored with it and it sat i knew it was time too pass it on.
Besides the seized hinge lock on the handle bars on mine and that lousy...
I agree with all above but on another hand i believe that kids can still have fun on it if you have the patience for it..
That type of engine like anything can be quite nit picky, noisy,slow,gutless and very problematic.
Some of these engines have a oil filled gear box some just have a...
After that long thoughtful stare at my prepped and ready tank, the idea came too me.
During the few min it took me too grab and set up the washers and snug them down and give the tank a little wobble test..
WOW WAS I ELATED that i thought of that.
But then during the painting process it...
I was lookin for a way too hang and paint my rupp tank and get full coverage even through the tank mount holes.
I needed to too spray it outside and move it indoors too dry and do it multiple times between color and clear coats obviously without touching it.

I never intended to do a true restoration even though it couldve been a easy restore ,but thats been done many times, and im...
Good job on the resurrection.
Alot of people just wouldn't be able too see the potential that bike had.
With just a little bit of effort and knowledge too clean it up and throw some parts at it and turn it back into a presentable rider that anyone should be able too see potential in.
Some may call you a trash digger, but that is more like a easy treasure hunt.
I have pulled a rockford chibi and a broncco out of scrap metal piles but neither was as nice as your find.
Being that nice I suspect the motor was pulled and sold off, and the wheels probably thrown...
New addition too a old thread.
This is a friends bike that i installed a tav, built the exhaust, welded up a rear caliper mount and threw a tec carb on the briggs too get it up and running.
I did the work in trade for the original 3.5 tec that was only ever ran 3 times an still looks new.
